If you haven’t made homemade popsicles, what are you waiting for? These pineapple coconut popsicles need only 5 ingredients and are the best refreshing addition to hot summer weather.

Sweet potato popsicles meet pina colada popsicles, and there you have the birth of these amazing creamy coconut popsicles.

I love a good pina colada iced drink. Picture it in popsicle form. This creamy coconut popsicle recipe is all you need poolside.

Coconut cream is magical in what it can do. I love it in this vegan chocolate cream pudding, too! It makes things so thick and creamy.

I haven’t made too many frozen sweet potato recipes, but this is definitely up there on the list as one of the best, along with these no bake cookie dough bites.

Creamy Coconut Popsicles Ingredients

Here’s what you need for this coconut milk popsicle recipe.

glass bowls with ingredients for coconut popsicles
  • coconut cream – the creamy white stuff in canned coconut milk (don’t get low fat coconut milk, it won’t have the cream)
  • mashed sweet potato
  • pineapple (fresh or canned both work)
  • honey
  • lime juice
  • popsicle molds (I used these silicone ones)

These coconut milk popsicles for toddlers are a great, whole foods-based snack. They are filling, thanks to the coconut cream, which provides the necessary fat for growing brains.

From 9-12 months, my youngest thrived on these during the summer (we omitted the honey) and my favorite sweet potato spinach baby food.

These are the best popsicles for toddlers (among my favorite healthy homemade toddler snacks), and I also love this as a baby popsicle recipe (after they turn 1), since it does have honey.

Though if you wanted to serve it before then, you could sub the honey for maple syrup or leave it out completely.

FAQ and Tips

Can babies eat creamy coconut popsicles?

Babies under age 1 can not have honey, so if you’re serving to babies, omit the honey. The texture is great for babies, especially those who are teething! The coconut cream also provides essential fat.

How long are pineapple coconut popsicles good for?

Many storebought popsicles will last 6-8 months. Since these are homemade, I would use them within 3-4 months.

Other toppings, add-in’s, modifications?

You can always switch the coconut milk to almond or dairy milk, however, it may not be as creamy. Not a sweet potato fan? You can leave them out. You can also omit the honey, especially if serving to babies or you don’t have a sweet preference.

Some other fun add in’s we’ve tried:
– chia seeds
– hemp seeds
– coconut water
– orange juice

Can you substitute pumpkin for sweet potato in these cream of coconut popsicles?

Yes, you can! You can even uesd mashed banana in place of the sweet potato as well.
